Central Standard Time
CST is 1 hour behind of EST. If you are in CST, the most convenient time to accommodate all parties is between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm for a conference call or meeting. In EST, this will be a usual working time of between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.
The Eastern time zone is one hour ahead of the Central time zone. So if it is 8:00 p.m. in the Eastern time zone, it is 7:00 p.m. in the Central time zone.
Central Time (CT) is 1 hour behind Eastern Time (ET). To convert CT to ET, you have to add one hour.
California Is in the Pacific Time Zone.
Pacific Standard Time (PST) is 2 hours behind Central Standard Time (CST). To convert PST to CST, you have to add two hours.
From east to west they are Atlantic Standard Time (AST), Eastern Standard Time (EST), Central Standard Time (CST), Mountain Standard Time (MST), Pacific Standard Time (PST), Alaskan Standard Time (AKST), Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), Samoa standard time (UTC-11) and Chamorro Standard Time (UTC+10).
Russia is the country to have most consecutive number of time zones. Russian time zones are UTC-2, UTC-3, UTC-4, UTC-5, UTC-6, UTC-7, UTC-8, UTC-9, UTC-10, UTC-11 and UTC-12.
24 times zones
The world is divided longitudinally into time zones, with each hour difference roughly 15 degrees apart. Due to some countries having half hour time zones, there are more than 24 times zones in the world. Most countries, especially the smaller ones, have only one time zone.
There are six designated US time zones; and there are four time zones in the contiguous USA. The Aleutian Islands, a spur of Alaska, and the Hawaiian Islands in the Pacific Ocean are 3750 km (2330 mi) apart but lie at similar longitudes.
Nebraska, Kansas, Texas, North and South Dakota are divided between Central and Mountain time zones. Florida, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee are split between Eastern and Central time zones. Alaska is split between the Alaska time zone and the Hawaii-Aleutian time zone.
Alaska is the largest state in the country, so it only stands to reason that it is in two time zones. But did you know that Alaska actually has a time zone all its own? This, called the Alaska time zone, covers almost every piece of the state. The exceptions in Alaska are the Aleutian Islands and St.

Though, sadly for the Americans, it left American Samoa marooned, only 70km away but 24 hours apart (25 in summer). And then there's the Republic of Kiribati, which became independent in 1979 by combining three colonies – the UK's Gilbert Islands, and the Phoenix and Line Islands from the US.

The first major cities to experience a new day are Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand (UTC+12:00; UTC+13:00 with daylight saving time). A 1994 realignment of the IDL made Caroline Island one of the first points of land on Earth to reach January 1, 2000, on the calendar (UTC+14:00).
Samoa! As you may know the international date line is as crooked as the contents of a badly packed suitcase, and Samoa, once known as the last place to see the sun set, is now the first place on the planet you can see the sun rise. This makes it's neighbour American Samoa the last.
The last place on Earth where any date exists is on Howland and Baker Islands, in the IDLW time zone (the Western Hemisphere side of the International Date Line), and so is the last spot on the globe for any day to exist. Therefore, the day ends AoE when it ends on Howland Island.
The time difference on either side of this line is 24 hours. So, the date changes as soon as one crosses this line. To avoid any confusion of date, this line is drawn through where the sea lies and not land. Hence, the IDL is drawn in a zig-zag manner.
